Storyline

Jen is thrilled when the handsome Philip asks her out to the theatre though less so when Roy and Moss also invite themselves along. The play in question is 'Gay', a screamingly camp musical which Moss loves but Jen begins to question Philip's sexuality and is not flattered when he confesses he fancies her because she looks like a man. Roy meanwhile has an accident in the disabled toilet which results in his being loaded into a mini-van bound back to Manchester with other disabled play-goers and Jen is surprised to see Moss working behind the bar after he used the staff toilet.

Roy: [looking at a promotional poster] A gay musical... called "Gay". That's quite gay. Gay musical... Aren't all musicals gay? This must be, like, the gayest musical ever made.

Funniest episode of the funniest ever sitcom
9 January 2015 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

I don't know anyone who didn't like 'the IT crowd; it strikes a chord with anybody who ever worked in an office situation and who had to deal with the geeks who seemed to be in control of some kind of sorcery in the computer department. This is the funniest of all the funny IT Crowd episodes; it will have tears running down your face. The episode centres on the work colleagues having a night out at the theatre, where a series of comic mix-ups get them into very funny situations indeed. The very last scene has Chris O'Dowd at his deadpan most hilarious. I loved the IT crowd, but this episode stands out as one of the funniest pieces of TV ever. This episode is up there with Fawlty Towers 'don't mention the war' and the 'Fools and Horses' chandelier scene. Achingly funny and a real classic!
